On August 25, a friend and I attended a wonderful seminar in Belleville, KS hosted by Brenda and Ray Danielson of Anvil Alpacas. The seminar, conducted by Drs. Ed and Ruthann McCaslin of Ohio, featured a morning session on parasites and treatment, led by Dr. Ruthann. The afternoon session was on the itchy topic of mites, led by Dr. Ed. Both were very informative and I learned a lot. Belleville is about 4 hours north and west from where I live, so it was fun to get the chance to see alpaca friends from the western part of the state that I don’t get to see very often. Lots of talk and laughter and useful information, so it was a great day!
Today’s mail brought more new items for the shop! Every time I open a new box it’s exciting to see what I will find in there. I’m never disappointed…the products are wonderful, and I hope you will think so, too. Lots of new things will be in the shop this year, along with our usual line, so be sure to come check things out.
Now would be a good time to remind everyone about the upcoming Kaw Valley Farm Tour, which will be Oct. 6 and 7, from 10am till 6pm both days. For $10 a car, this is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, enjoying a wide variety of farms.
Today finds me readying the new brochures I’ve made up about our farm and alpacas. After the workshop on social media I attended recently, I’ve made sure to include a link to our Facebook page as well as a QR code for smart phones. I guess this old dog can still learn a few new tricks!
Enjoy the end of summer and get ready for a great fall season!
